If there’s any state in the union that would elect someone like Cindy Sheehan, it would be California.
How’s this for an oddity?
The newly proclaimed candidate is none other than Cindy Sheehan, who gained notoriety a few years ago as the angry mother of a soldier killed in Iraq.
Sheehan has always been a bizarre figure, and she’s obviously grown more radical as the years have passed. She openly described herself as a socialist, proclaimed her admiration for Hugo Chavez and described California Gov. Jerry Brown as an “a**hole.”
There’s no word yet on the Vegas odds of her winning the governor’s seat in 2014.
Green Party malcontents gathered in Wisconsin last week to hold the inaugural “Democracy Convention” – a time to gripe about capitalism and America in general and plot ways to overhaul or overthrow both.
